We are looking for an experienced IT expert to join our School Technology Team. This is a new function within the Information Technology Service team at the GDST. The team will work with schools on a daily basis to ensure that they are getting the best use from the technology solutions available. Acting as a consultant you will guide the teams in setting their technology path and future direction of travel. 

We are looking for someone with a strong educational background, maybe as a former teacher, teaching assistant, or as a school digital leader. The ideal candidate will have credibility with both school teaching staff and technical staff. The GDST has put digital learning at the heart of its agenda, and this role is key in delivering this successfully.

Diplomacy and collaboration are essential in this role; it is all about helping our schools to use technologies to the best of their ability, it’s about helping schools learn how to do it, rather than doing it for them.

We have a wide technical platform, with schools invested in Apple, Google, and Microsoft technologies, you will need to be agnostic to them all.

This role can be home-based or based out of our Trust Office (London). It is expected that the post holder will spend 1 day a week in the Trust Office, and the rest either in school or working from home. You will need to be located a commutable distance from our London Office. 

This is an exciting time to join a progressive and evolving team, taking on the challenges of ensuring we have the right systems to support the education of our girls and schools. 

Along with a competitive salary, we offer a great working environment, generous pension scheme, professional development opportunities and 30 days annual leave (plus bank holidays).

Applications should be submitted to ITS-recruitment@wes.gdst.net
